Where Can You Buy a House in North San Diego for Under $500,000?

Monday, July 7th, 2014

The North San Diego housing market is pricey, and for that reason many people move outside of the county in order to find affordable homes. Of course they have to deal with long commutes to work in San Diego, not to mention being away from our ideal weather, but it makes sense for many.

If you just can’t fathom not living the San Diego lifestyle and don’t want to live outside the county, there are some areas where you can afford a detached home for under $500,000. Let’s focus on three areas in North County that will allow you to afford San Diego real estate on a budget under $500,000.SanMarcos

San Marcos. San Marcos is a great area that has changed dramatically in the last decade. Located only 8-10 miles from the ocean and right off the 78 freeway (close to the 15 and  less than 10 miles from the 5), this community offers several different neighborhoods where your dollar can stretch a lot farther than in coastal neighborhoods. There are many restaurants, shopping and entertainment throughout the community, as well as Cal State University San Marcos.

There are currently 45 active homes under $500,000 in San Marcos, in neighborhoods like Discovery Hills, Twin Oaks and Santa Fe Hills. Each neighborhoods offers different amenities – some are gated communities. There are also retirement communities in the Lake San Marcos area that will fit into this budget. If you have a townhome or condo in mind you will have even more choices, such as the well-known walkable community of San Elijo Hills.

VistaVista. Vista has been touted as one of the best weather cities in North San Diego. With constant ocean breezes (Vista is located 7 miles from the ocean) and a central location to all of north county, Vista has a lot to offer, whether you are looking to live in the middle of or away from it all. According to Wikipedia “Vista was listed as the seventh-best place in the United States for family life, based on factors such as jobs and business opportunities, education, climate, and cost-of-living in a 2008 review.

Right now there are 86 active detached homes under $500,000 in Vista. These properties lie in different areas of the city, from the popular Shadowridge area (which sits right next to Carlsbad and has a nice golf course and close proximity to the ocean), to rural and city neighborhoods.

Oceanside. If you want to live closer to the beach Oceanside, San Diego’s northernmost community, is a great option. Formerly known as solely a military town, Oceansideit has developed and changed substantially in the last decade, with a variety of neighborhoods along and off the 76 corridor. Many homes here can be purchased for under $500,000 – whether you are looking for older or newer homes, tract neighborhoods or custom homes. There really is something for everyone in Oceanside.

Currently there are 171 detached homes on the market in Oceanside, including many different neighborhood types and locations. Oceanside is known for its wonderful weather, nice beaches and the pier, its many bike and hiking trails, and Mission San Luis Rey.

There are coastal finds for under $500,000 in other cities as well. For more information, detailed market reports and/or home listings in any of these or other north San Diego areas, please feel free to contact me at, or visit my website.

Announcing the New Website for LaMar Real Estate

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

After months of planning and development I am excited to announce the new website of LaMar Real Estate is now fully functional! I created this site with the needs of the buyer and seller as my first priority.

The new home search links provide more detailed searches, and there are links to helpful tools and articles, localized live market data reports, real estate news, social media links and of course, my blog. In the coming months look for helpful vlogs to be added to the site, which will provide information about basic questions buyers and sellers ask, including information on how to sell distressed properties.

I wanted to capture the beauty of North Coastal San Diego with this new website, and I have highlighted some of the cities and areas in which I work on my Communities page. The great school information is still accessible, and you can enjoy the stunning photos that are displayed.

I am excited to offer this site to everyone interested in North San Diego coastal real estate, as well as those who already live here and want to keep up with local issues, news and trends. I welcome suggestions–if there is anything you would like me to highlight in my blog or something you feel would be helpful on the site, please let me know! If you are not there already you can visit the site at Enjoy!
